No the user doesn't need to write execline scripts. The following
equally applies to s6-rc.

Refer to:
"execline makes it natural to handle long command lines made of massive
amounts of chain loading. This is by no means mandatory, though: a run
script can be any executable file you want, provided that running it
eventually results in a long-lived process with the same PID."

Regarding creating a s6 subdir of bin. I have some 1325 applications
(FreeBSD people call them ports), only 1 has a separate directory under bin.
